    Is that John Cusack in the first pic? If not, that’s his lookalike!

    Gold buttons on a rich navy wool? Always a good look as long as the size is right as shown here. i’m intrigued by the third picture – love the buttons high up on the shoulder – i guess they are for fastening a hood? wonder what the front looks like? i loved the Italian posts, how will Paris live up?

    I was never a big fan of gold buttons. I think they look gaudy.

    That is a classic piece of wardrobe. I love the buttons around the hood. Any idea about the manufacturer?

    I don’t especially like this mini-trend. Buttons, I think, should generally first be utilitarian–function before form. When they’re fighting to make a statement on their own, they tend to limit one’s own freedom to accessorize.

    Gold buttons scream for attention. It is a nautical look, one too bold for me to try. The only golden buttons I have came with an old Loro Piana cashmere jacket I found at a thrift store, and on the jacket they stayed, although I would switch them if I knew how to do it. I like the first example, but again it is too strong a statement, and they tend to overwhelm the outfit, IMHO. Jorge from W Palm Beach

    I love military-style coats and coats with gold buttons – I don’t see enough of them (maybe has something to do to the fact that people don’t wear coats in SoFla).

    I know it’s not, but it just smells Americana to me.

    Good call.

    hood buttons are so unusual and interesting
    not a fan of gold buttons in general tho…too uniform-like

    I love the last photo! Navy wool coat and gray trousers in the fore flanked by puffer coats, beanies and jeans just out of focus.

    And the bare nape of ivory neck and pink, cold ears are just all little boy wonderful. You know he kissed his mum before he left this morning!!

    I’m not crazy about the fit of the coat on the man.. it almost looks too big for him and I don’t like the way it bulges when he sits down.
    Otherwise it’s a good and classic look you can’t go wrong with.

    Silver buttons look much better on a navy pea coat, check for yourself. But not bad.

    i dont think silver looks better. in this kind of coats with the navy feel its all about gold and i love the effect. you have to be carefull and be sure to pull it off and not over-do the outfit so that it doesnt look like a fancy dress. but i like it.

    Since yellow gold jewelry seems to be making a comeback this seems natural…I really like the buttons. They look great against all the navy wool

    i love the gold buttons, I believe that it is going to become a big trend.
    my idea: buy a usual black or navy or white coat and replace the usual buttons with gold ones.

    1st Picture: The jacket looks great, normally the shorter pea coat’s aren’t that nice!
    Would have worn navy blue leather gloves though, or a lighter brown, of course depending on his shoes.

    hmm…those gloves are seriously Pimpin’, ready to put the smack down if need be. The coat looks expensive, the gold buttons I like. I wish I could see what is on the button, an eagle? The back of the jacket looks sort of funny, like a fat man in a little jacket. I’m sure its suppose to be that way, I can dig it.

    Jorge! Please don’t tell us you can’t sew a button! Please return to the thrift store and find another jacket with buttons you love. Check that they fit through the button holes on your jacket, then just nip off the gold ones and replace them with the new ones.

    Then offer the gold ones for sale on here because it sounds like they will be in high demand :)
